This past week, Needle Nicely had a sale celebrating its 35th year in Vero Beach. It was such a success that my shop stitching time was tiny. I only managed to locate the perle for stitching the angel's face from the shop "stash". I did start her face using the diagonal mosaic in DMC perle #5.
Vero Beach's population dropped drastically March 31 when the majority of renters left town (most rentals are from Jan 1 through March 31). The next batch of renters left yesterday, renting from Jan 15 through April 15. If you've ever been anywhere near I-95 on either of those dates, you know it is the worst place in the world to be. On March 31 and April 1, it is almost bumper-to-bumper traffic out of Florida, through Georgia, and then places North. If I were a March 31 renter, I would take a motel room for two days before I started the drive North. Much easier on the blood pressure!
